Based in Howard County, Maryland, Christina Tundo Photography serves all the definitions of family within the DMV area, preserving the authentic moments, both big and small, that you want to hold onto forever.
Recently, a client and dear friend of mine said: “I just wish I had more pictures with my mom.” That single sentence simultaneously broke my heart and reminded me why I do what I do as a family photographer. So many of us look at portrait sessions as a “here and now” thing, when really – they’re our legacy.
As busy parents in today’s world, it’s easy to pass on the opportunities we have for family portraits. But I want to take a minute today with you to pause and really think about what we’re actually saying “no” to. I get it: I really do. Family portraits can be stressful. They can be difficult with young kids or members who aren’t super into the idea. We worry about how we look, if our kids are the right age, and so much more. While passing family photos may save us some stress, we also lose the chance to document our families and our stories. Our photos are what so many of us have left of our loved ones – and what are passed down between families.
The time to start documenting your family is now. Working with the right photographer means that it won’t matter how little (or big) your babies are. The right photographer will make your entire process easy and stress-free, going the extra mile to help make your session everything you dreamed of capturing. If you’re nervous to book a session, try a mini session with a photographer you like! It’s a great way to start documenting your family and ease into the idea. But the important part IS to document your family.
One day, all your children will have is their memories and these portraits. Allow your story and your love to live on in beautiful portraits through the years.
